How to Style a Watch With Any Outfit

Watches are a lot like rings in that if you wear them, you probably rarely take yours off. But while you may play favorites with your go-to piece, there's an art to learning how to style a watch so that it looks not just functional but enviable as well.

For inspiration, look to fashion week street style, where you'll see outfits as casual as jeans and a tee and as fancy as head-to-toe Chanel accessorized with cool timepieces. Layered with piles of mismatched bracelets, complemented with a statement cuff, or worn solo on an otherwise bare arm, they lend a classic touch to any look. 

Whether you prefer polished gold or silver, timeless leather, or a colorful canvas band, see how to wear a watch like a fashion pro—and shop a few of our favorite styles.
